Wedding Photography Prices Post Covid

At Craige Barker Photography we have held our Wedding Photography Prices for another year. I will not be increasing any prices in the next 12 months.

Wedding Photography Prices
Wedding in Portmeirion

This year has been crazy for all involved, from wedding couples trying to book their weddings and wedding photography, or having to move dates repeatedly. I have managed to accommodate all my couples so far. And after four major moves and no extra charges for any of my couples. Since the announcement that we can book again I have had a big increase in bookings. Hitched.com and Bridebook.com have been the main source of these new leads and I’m so grateful for the work they have done. It’s been bad for us all but it’s now a new year and a new dawn. I know it’s hard to not worry but we do try and accommodate changes and we have done everything possible not to charge for date changes and so far I have not charged for any changes.

The main thing everyone is asking for is guarantees that if there are further changes there will be no charges. Its been easy to say that if the new date you want to move to is free I will cover free of charge. As you are aware I can’t increase my wedding photography prices just because of covid. So for the forceable future my charges will be locked in. the single biggest issue is the deposit but If I can’t cover a new date I will consider the refund of a deposit.

I have some new venues I have started dealing with and I hope this grows. Watch this space! 2021 and 2022 are looking like the busiest years so far with the amount of work booked in. I’m offering free albums with the top package. Also with discounts from Hitched and Bridebook, couples are getting a great deal.

The main purpose of this promotion is for couples to get used to myself and see if I fit in with the feeling of the big day. All the pictures will be edited ready for and Album and I will supply on a website and can be downloaded. If I do get booked for the wedding I will supply the images on a memory bottle also.

New Year, New Start, New Web Site

As we move in to 2020 I decided to sort the SEO out on my website and after a weeks investigation I have decided to launch a new website. The new Squarespace site allows me to control website headers and tags and hopefully get better and higher results.

Best Shot of Peter Hook Ever

When I take a photo most of the time I have a good idea where it’s going to appear and how it’s to be presented. Every now and again there is a picture that surprises you like the one below that has appeared in music magazines and websites across the planet for a long time. It was part of another shoot with Peter Hook and the Light of which none of the other pics from the same gig has ever been published.

Tytherington Club Wedding Demonstration.

On Friday I was asked to take pictures at a mock-up of a wedding scenario at Tytherington Club and Hotel in Tytherington. I’ve done a wedding fayre there before but I couldn’t get any shots. This time we had up lights from The Dream Sound Media Group and clothes from Maria Modes Bridal and Cheshire Menswear. The models were from Tytherington themselves and they looked amazing. I think we got some useable shots all helped by the wonderful makeup and modelling skills of Makeup By Jess. The room was dressed by Vogue Venue Styling best I’ve seen the room.
